All this assumes you use plastic bottles. We don't, except for milk bottles, so a bit limiting. Some of the ideas look good, but not sure about some of those boats.

Uh oh, no plastic bottles, crickey, you will drown without a plastic bottle boat... Thus I conclude that plastic bottles will save humanity...

Well ocean voyages have been made on balsa wood rafts and reed boats so why not.

Yup a transat was done in a plastic bottle boat. But then if you throw a bottle in the sea in the Canary islands, it will wash up in the Caribbean anyway.
